Yes, it's that time again.

My love for Duntara began in my teens when I spent my summer vacations there with my Aunt Mary in the house above. Life has come full circle since 2002 when we built our own house up the road from Mr. Harty's place. This harbour is particularly stunning in fall. Everywhere I look I see natural beauty. As summer winds down it becomes quiet and even more relaxing if that's possible.

Fall means something quite different in my life. It heralds the reality of my peak production time for design and blogging, and a decrease in art production. Reminding myself that the ease of the summer months would not be so special if I could do it all year helps a little. But that final trip out is always bitter sweet.

Now doesn't the differences between these two tables sum up my two lives.
So it's planning time. September is the month when I feel anything is possible. It's about deciding where I want to go and coming up with a way to get there.
I've been putting a lot of thought into the next step for this blog. My original purpose was to use blogging as a way to consolidate my ideas about various design topics, and at the same and provide practical information about design that would answer questions that average DIY homeowners might have. I've written about all sorts of topics and my list of popular posts shows which have been most read, some with hundreds of thousands of page views from around the world. That always blows my mind. Now I'm ready to change it up a bit.
